How Are Rubber Extruded Gaskets & Components Made?

Extruded gaskets are run through an extrusion machine or an extruder. Then, the softened rubber compound is forced through a die to create the extruded rubber shape or necessary cross-section, such as hollow sections, cord shapes, and squares. Hollow sections and cross-sections add the compression element that is necessary for sealing. Common applications for hollow extrusion include

  • Vehicle sunroofs
  • Garage doors
  • Window panes
  • Windshields
  • Boat hatches
  • Vibration reducers
  • Window, door, and cabinet seals
  • Tubing
  • Window seals for mass transit.

The rubber extrusion process empowers us to deliver high-quality products across a range of applications.
